Comments on: Follow The Triple Brick Road http://www.baseball-reference.com/blog/archives/3657 This and that about baseball stats.

However, 5 of Wilson's 6 Home Runs that year were of the Inside-The-Park variety. Had he just stayed put at third, they would have had two players with 18 triples on the same team. It would have been the only time a team had two players with 18 triples since the 1930 Pirates.

I was totally floored and thought I'd better re-read it...

I was eye-balling Neft and Cohen, and missed Lou Finney because he was listed with the subs instead of the regulars. Thanks.
